Product Highlights
  • For Shoe Mount Flash Units
  • Includes Umbrella Bracket
  • Quick Setup
  • Folds Flat, Compact
The Impact Quikbox Softbox Kit (24 x 24") is a great way to expand the capabilities of your shoe mount stand flash unit. The Quikbox lives up to its name by popping open and assembling in a couple of minutes. Just pop open the softbox, add the diffusers and included adapter ring and shoe adapter. Mount to the included umbrella bracket, slip it onto the provided air-cushioned light stand and you're ready to shoot.

Using a softbox with your shoe-mounted flash will help to diffuse and to evenly distribute the light output of the flash. This will help to reduce those harsh shadows which are often the result of flash photography. Also included is an internal diffuser, to minimize the possibility of hotspots. In addition, the recessed front face helps to control light spill.

The included flash bracket is adjustable vertically, and features a universal shoe which is adjustable horizontally. These adjustments make this unit compatible with virtually all standard flash units (incl. Nikon SB-900 & SB-910), as well as radio receivers. In addition, for those receivers that do not feature a bottom shoe connector, the bracket shoe is removable to expose a male 1/4"-20 screw. There are also three plastic washers included in the shoe assembly, to accommodate receivers of various sizes.

    A warning and a tip on using this box

          Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox Kit (24 x 24"):

          First off, I LOVE the Quikbox Softbox Kit by Impact. I bought it after watching a Kelby Training video which featured the product called, "Light It. Shoot It. Retouch it – On a Budget with Hot Shoe Flash."Two things I learned the hard way about this product: 1. The circular bracket does NOT go into the hole in the back of the softbox. I was using it this way at the beginning which still works (though marginally) but the correct way is to install the circular bracket just outside the hole in the back. It'll pop in behind the four metal rounded ends. The instructions left me guessing on that and I'm sure I'm not the only one who scratched their head at that. 2. The bracket assembly is made of two parts: the circular part and the part that connects to the light stand. There's a screw on the side that tightens these two pieces together. Be CAREFUL not to torque on this screw too much when tightening the two pieces. I tightened too much and cracked the part that connects to the light stand (which is made of plastic). The plastic eventually split apart and I had to buy a new bracket assembly for $[$](which you can buy on this site).

            Easy to set up and perfect for soft lighting. Easily mounts any flash. I use a radio remote to trigger. Used for portraits and very universal for great lighting effects.

              Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox Kit (24 x 24"):

              This is a fantastic product for those beginning to fiddle with light. It's lightweight, durable, and all of the parts needed arrive in one package.

              The setup is troublesome at first because you have to connect the inner diffuser via hooks and that can take a great while. After that, attaching the outer diffuser is simple because it involves velcro. Attach the speed ring to the softbox, mount the speed ring to the umbrella bracket and you're good to go.

              There's just one issue with the product: one of the reversible studs is too small for adequate use with the included umbrella bracket. It does not fit well in the bracket and in the speed ring mount. Therefore, you must go out and buy a better and longer one. I recommend the Manfrotto 013 Double-ended Spigot. It's cheap, durable, and made of high quality.

              Also, to get more use out of the softbox, pick up the 24" x 24" grid to help limit and control the spill.

                  Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox Kit (24 x 24"):

                  I have been holding off on purchasing any light modifiers because I typically shoot sports and nature. When I say B&H advertise this kit at a special price I just could not resist. First off, B&H delivery and service was outstanding as usual. Item arrived well packaged and quickly.

                  Hving never worked with setting up a light stand or softbox before I can truely say that this was simple. It tool me just a few minutes to get set up and my flash mounted to it. I didn't even read any of the instructions -- it was completely intuitive.

                  The box itself folds flat like a reflector and pops up to shape just by unfolding -- no rods to insert!

                  The stand and mounts all good quality. As you would expect extending the stand to the top height will require some sandbag weights at the base -- although it was pretty stable without.

                  The mounts are versatile enough so that I can mount my remote flash receiver under my flash and still have the flash line up with the opening.

                    Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox Kit (24 x 24"):

                    The Impact Quikbox is an excellent product. As noted in other reviews the inner difuser is a little tricky but once installed it can be left in place so not a big deal, unless you want to remove it. The box is very sturdy, easy to attach the adapter ring and bracket which make the rig very stable. The light stand is a bit to light weight but will be useful for other tasks ( I already have a pair of Impact 9.5' stands that I like a lot). The umbrella bracket I found to be to weak, again useful for other thing. I may seem to be negative on the last 2 items and I don't mean to be, they are very good, just to light weight for me, however when you consider the price of this kit it's a great bargain, hence the 5 stars. Also the flash shoe mount is also made very well and will come in handy.

                      Comments about Impact Quikbox Softbox Kit (24 x 24"):

                      The softbox is easy to assemble, but adding the inner diffuser was a pain. The little clips were difficult to keep open while trying to hook them on the small elastic loops that are attached to the softbox itself. The outer diffuser went on just fine and the mount was a quick install as well. I gave it four stars because of the four clips. They should just be four hooks. It would have made it much easier to install and uninstall. The stand is nice too. I read many reviews saying that the air-cushioning effect was no good. Maybe it is a little ratchety, but to me, that's better then damaging my lights and other attached equipment. I will say...I wish that it was the 13' stand. The umbrella bracket is nice too. Not much to say...it's an umbrella bracket. It works perfectly. All in all, I was impressed with the light output. The soft shadows were just what I was looking for, and I really love the seclusion of light from a softbox vs a shoot-thru umbrella. But I must say, each has it's own place in light.
